In Colorado, slip and fall accidents, or trip and fall accidents, fall under the area of premises liability law. Premises liability law dictates where a property owner, manager, tenant, visitor, invitee, or trespasser is responsible for injuries that occur on the premises. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Daniel T. Goodwin have significant experience in premises liability law and slip and fall claims.
Slip and fall accidents can occur due to many reasons, including:
- Unseen ice or snow
- Water, spilled liquids, or other slippery material
- Defects in walkways such as holes, cracks, or bumps
- Inadequate lighting
Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere but commonly occur in restaurants, bars, stores, apartments, and hotels.
